The global media company’s Top 100 lists for Europe, Asia and North America have become a mark of distinction and celebrate the most innovative technologies of private companies and entrepreneurs.

“Selecting startups that show the most potential for disruption and growth is never easy,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “We looked at hundreds and hundreds of candidates from all across the continent, and after much thought and debate, narrowed the list down to the Top 100 Winners.”

“We are thrilled to win this award,” said Emmanuel Benzaquen, CEO of Checkmarx – a creator of software solutions that secure mobile and web applications which protect consumer data as they are programmed. “It is confirmation that our technology is not only groundbreaking, but recognized as integral for securing applications that contain the personal information of millions of people. As the popularity of mobile and web applications rises, it is more urgent than ever to ensure consumer privacy and security. The best way to do this is by checking for vulnerabilities as the app is developed, before any consumer information is put at risk.”

There were over 30 Israeli companies shortlisted for the award.
